Yes, that is the exact antenna that I am using. I saw others mention the first tip in the Amazon reviews, I am using a 9" metal pie plate. Would that be sufficient?
I will give your second suggestion a try. I’m curious, why does this help? Isn’t the antenna above already tuned for 1090 MHz? Also, if you are trying to build a 1/4 wave antenna, shouldn’t the length be (300 / 1090) * 0.25 = 0.06875 meters = 68.75 mm? Not questioning your wisdom here, just trying to understand.
I have the antenna placed near an exterior window, but RF is still a challenge in my home since I have metal siding. I would like to get this on my roof, but I’m not thrilled about drilling a hole in the wall just to satisfy my geekdom.
Thanks for the response!
